Daily Show Video: James Dobson's Baracknophobia

Meanwhile, the earth's overseer, God, has yet to weigh in on this upcoming election. Now we all remember his dramatic endorsement of George W Bush at the 2000 convention (shows Bush with burning bush) and his somewhat less dramatic endorsement four years later (smaller burning bush).

But John McCain's bona fides with the big man are right now in question. He's divorced, he's pro-stem cell research. He's a clone. And let's be honest, he's not as tough on the gays as Jesus would've hoped.

Meanwhile, BO although Muslim is also Christian. His speeches have the air of a revival meeting. Could God be a swing vote. It's the subject of tonight's Baracknophobia.

This is Focus on the Family president Dr. James Dobson seen here dressed as 1970. He's so concerned about Barack OBama making inroads among evangelicals he had to speak out. His qualifications to do so. (Dobson saying I'm not a reverend, I'm not a minister, I'm not a theologian, I'm not an evangelist) I'm just a hate-filled guy that got lucky. And he's clearly spent the last few months digging through Obama's Barackford files and this is the smoking gun he has found: a 2006 speech where Senator Barack Obama reflects on the drawbacks of theocracy.

(Cut to Obama saying: Which scripture should we go with? Leviticus which suggests slavery is okay and eating shellfish is an abomination?)

Oh. We can't do that. That would destroy the Bubba Gump Forced Labor Shrimp Company. You'll come for the shrimp. You'll stay because, it's forced labor, you'll have to stay. But the interesting thing here is you see what is going on. You see what Obama is doing here.

(Cut to Dobson saying: I think he's deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own world view, his own confused theology)

Absolutely! It's basic evangelical teaching! The Old Testament rules were superseded by the New Testament. Dipping back into Leviticus is a cheap trick. Only someone distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit their own world view and confused theology would do.

(Cut to Larry King asking Dobson about being anti-gay and Dobson saying that it's written in the scripture, in the book of Leviticus)

Oh, right, it's okay if you're talking about the homos. Still, I wouldn't mention to Leviticus to Larry King. I mean, he was there. Lot's wife was actually Larry's third wife. He married her post-pillar of salt. The truth is if you looked at the whole of Obama's speech it was actually kinda pro-evangelical.
